Finally I moved from Youngstown year-and-a-half ago but you know watching that made me a little homesick. It is crazy ruthless there, and if you don't hustle nor have a Savage bone in your body you will not succeed or even live to the age of 35.! Homesick yes, reminding a why I left absolutely! you need to check out Fayetteville Arkansas in the northwest of the state. The economy is crazy strong, they care about their community, I thought I was you know in The wizard of Oz are on the other side of the rainbow when I came here. Goes to show you there's no regrets leaving a place like Youngstown. Youngstown ingrained in me never trust people, be aware of my surroundings, I keep to myself cuz I probably don't want to know nor be part of for that matter. Thank you for sharing. That was crazy seeing where my hometown is on your list of top 10. I love it though

I live in Youngstown and its kinda s***s here. And before anyone else from Youngstown yell at me a say its not bad let me explain. I live on the West side of Youngstown and all I see is drug dealers and other stuff. Basically someone dies everyday. I had a couple of people from my old high school just killed a kid on the next street over for weed. These kids are 16-18 years old. Like some parts aren't bad but once you lived here long enough you want to leave. And I'm not saying i don't love Youngstown, its just I don't want to die. To many people I know are dying or going to jail. I always have to watch my back here.

I live in Youngstown and I am from Warren..... I really think that this area 330 has been plagued by a culture of underachieving and settling for less. The people here are just people who don't know better cause they hardly ever see it and when they do it's in the form of a things or people who often come off as talking down on the area. Over time this caused a sense of being proud of some of the area's worst qualities... idk just my two cents

I'm from Youngstown..The 'Yo' as most of us call it and it's not that bad..Some people call it The Armpit Of The State ;).. I happen to Love living in Ohio...Everyone has the right to their own opinion though..

I live in West Middlesex PA, a small town maybe a 10 minutes drive from Youngstown. Youngstown State University has a beautiful campus, and the city's downtown is slowly growing back. I love Youngstown.

I was born and raised in Youngstown, OH.

Unfortunately i have vrry little good to say about this town....We are so repressed and in the black hole that we're not even metioned in statistics- The Greater Youngstown area took a major blow to its economy when the Steel Mills folded up in the late 1970s by early 1980s they were pretty much done. In fact as a result of the Steel Mill closings 40,000 people left the Greater Youngstown-Warren area and migrated elsewhere to survive.

No major industries have decided to come to this rustbelt since those times. We did have General Motors in Lordstown, OH. Since 1967 originally employing close to 6000 employees. By the mid-late 1976 they maxed out at 12000 employees.

The GM Lordstown plant certainly had it layoffs and strikes over the years. But the Lordstown Plant was part of the North-East Ohio community.

Just like the Big Steel Mills eventually died on March 6, 2019 GM produced its last Chevy Cruz. Lordstown was part of the local scene for 53 years now its just one more vacant building to look at and try not to cry.

I wish i could be more hopeful but i can't i was employed by a distribution center that suppied GM Lordstown now we are closed as a result of GM deciding to close the Lordstown Plant.

My favorite place in Youngstown would have to be Mill Creek Metro-Park.
